Apologies for the Brain Game hiatus last week; it was necessary for me to spend time with my family. Sincere thanks to the well-wishers out there. We're back in business, however, and here's today's brand new puzzle. Enjoy!

The five-letter words in the first line follow a particular order. Your job is to pick the ONE word from the three given choices that would best continue this sequence:

BLOOD, SIGHT, WORLD, CLASS, WHEEL, SENSE, CHORD, _____

Choose from: CHECK, NOTES, TIGER

Here is the SOLUTION.

THE SOLUTION:

NOTES.

The three words can be connected by successive ordinals:  FIFTH wheel, SIXTH sense, SEVENTH chord... so the answer is notes, as in EIGHTH notes.

NOTE: The point here is to exercise the noggin, so my answer isn't necessarily the only one. Did you come up with a different answer and/or a different reason for coming up with it? Feel free to share it with us in the comments below. Thanks for playing!
